Good Morning and Welcome back! I hope that you have had a great weekend, I was lucky enough to spend Saturday relaxing at the spa. If you ever have the opportunity to visit Collingwood Ontario I suggest that you plan to spend at least a few hours at the Scandinave, it is wonderful.
Today marks the start of another StampFairy challenge and this week Gerda has designed another of her fantastic sketches for you to use.
For my card this week I have chosen to use a Christmas Sweetie, if you have not already seen him I would like to introduce you to George CandyCanes.
He has been coloured in Copics and accented with Glossy Accents and Liquid Applique. This great background paper is from the Prima North Country line and I love how it really sets off this image. I have also used some Co-ordinations Kraft core distress card stock which has been embossed and sanded. I am loving the look of this paper.
I have stuck pretty close to the sketch this time around adding a sheer red ribbon and a doily cut using a Cheery Lynn Doily die (gotta get more of these). The metal accent in the corner is from Wild Orchid Crafts and began life in a silver tone but I have coloured it with Copics to tie it into my card.
I hope that you will join us for the challenge. Be sure to visit the challenge blog to see the rest of the lovely creations from the DT. If you have not been by the store in a while you will want to visit there as well. Gerda has been busy and has added several great new collections over the last few weeks.
Here is the latest release for an example.
This card will be entered into the following challenges:
